ACID REDUCER Lifestyle Interactions

Famotidine 20mg, Oral tablet

Alcohol

· Severity: Mild

· Notes for Consumers: Side effects from drinking alcohol-containing drinks may get worse if you take H2-blockers such as cimetidine, famotidine, nizatidine, and ranitidine. Avoid or minimize your intake of alcohol-containing drinks while taking H2-blockers.

· Notes for Professionals: Some studies have suggested that H2-receptor antagonists inhibit gastric alcohol (ethanol) dehydrogenase and thus decrease the first pass metabolism of ethanol, and some studies have suggested an interaction may not always occur. A meta-analysis evaluating the effects of H2-blockers on blood ethanol concentrations reported that only cimetidine and ranitidine, but not other H2-blockers, caused small elevations in serum ethanol levels. However, it was reported that larger studies were less likely to show an effect and that these elevations were not likely to be clinically relevant.
